A chunky scarf is great to snuggle into on snowy days, but what if it’s just not cold enough for all of that bulk? It’s time to embrace the cowl!

The Chic Cabled Cowl is the perfect on-the-go winter accessory. It’s big enough to keep the chill away, but small enough to keep in your coat pocket when the temperature begins to rise. Buttons on the side let you control how warm you want to be, and the cables add a classic texture.

For this project I used one of my very favorite yarns, Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted. Shepherd Worsted is a beautiful hand dyed yarn with wonderful stitch definition and great depth of color. It’s also happens to be a superwash wool, which makes it the perfect yarn for outerwear!

Quicker than a full-sized scarf, the Chic Cabled Cowl is a great first cable project. You can keep the cables even, or add a personal touch by working cables at random intervals throughout. The Chic Cabled Cowl makes a great holiday gift, whether you’re planning ahead or looking for a last-minute knit.
